Liberal Ignorance, Arrogance: Redefining the First Amendment
If you don’t know what your rights are as set down by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights … How can you protect or defend them? What we are seeing in America today is a blatant push back against our First Amendment rights by a liberal caste that is out of control either out of ignorance or malice.
Milo Yiannopoulos was prevented from giving a paid talk at Berkley because liberals took offense to his message, a message they were not forced to hear or participate in … but took it upon themselves to deny any who wished (and some paid) to hear. This was accomplished via the mechanism of violence as is shown in the short video below …
The above video was republished from the Positiv News Youtube channel.
So in todays liberal world, if you don’t agree with someones message you now feel empowered to stop that message by any means available … including violence, destruction of private and government property, and the violation of civil law!
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FIRST AMENDMENT?
Liberals are now proving over and over again that they firmly believe in their freedom of speech and will go to any lengths to exercise it. The issue at hand here is that these same liberals also believe that any opinion, belief, or point of view they do not share, can and will be prevented or punished by any means necessary … up to and including violence against property and person. So this translates into Enforcement of political belief via the mechanism of violence, or … Fascism!
Wait … isn’t it the right or conservative base they are accusing of being Fascistic?
Do these liberal domestic terrorist even have a clue as to what Fascism truly is … or what the First Amendment states or portrays? By all we are seeing and hearing today the answer can only be a resounding NO.
If you believe my commentary to this point to be harsh, accuse me of being a ultra-conservative, anti-liberal, or a neocon … NOPE! Please watch the following video for a mind shattering perspective on how the First Amendment is perceived on one of our most liberal college campuses.
The following video is not a new video but screams volumes on the subject of the status of the First Amendment in America today.

Ami on the Street: Political Satirist Ami Horowitz tests the waters at Yale University to see if today’s Ivy league students would actually sign a petition to repeal the First Amendment. In shocking hidden camera video, multiple Yale University students signed a petition to scrap the First Amendment. In under 60 minutes filming on the Yale campus, Ami collected over 50 signatures from Yalies who wanted to repeal a significant part of the Constitution.
Horowitz went around asking students to sign a petition to “blow up” the First Amendment. One student said, “I think this is fantastic, I absolutely agree” with the idea of getting rid of the First Amendment.
Others said, “excellent” or “I love it” when presented with a petition to scrap the First Amendment.
A female student agreed with Horowitz when he suggested, “I think the Constitution should be one big safe space.”
Ironically, the First Amendment protects freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, freedom of the press, and freedom of petition. A right the students and Horowitz took full advantage of that day.
One student continued to sign the petition while being told, “Micro-aggressions should not be protected, and making fun of people is not cool and you know, it sucks.”
A Yale University spokesman was not amused and questioned the veracity of the video: “There are a number of heavily edited prank videos like this one circulating lately in which someone surreptitiously records people while pretending to support a position that they actually oppose, and trying to get the individuals they speak with to agree with them,” Tom Conroy wrote in an email. “I have to acknowledge that I don’t take them seriously as an accurate representation of what every person interviewed or shown in the videos believes.” I wasn’t there when the video was filmed and can’t resolve any dispute over the video’s claims, but disrespect for the First Amendment is common on campus.
A recent YAF survey showed that a stunning 53 percent of students believed that “choosing to use or not use certain words can constitute an act of violence,” and many student radicals openly long for European models of hate speech prosecution. So it’s not hard to believe that dozens of students from one of America’s elite universities would petition the government to end, among other things, the right to petition the government.
With continuous and increasing calls for violent revolution, and the assassination of a sitting president by this liberal caste … We are flirting dangerously with open revolution in the streets of America today, and this is being sparked, funded, and driven from behind the scenes by an elitist cast with emphasis of the likes of George Soros who has openly stated his intent on bringing this country to its knees to allow for global governance … This is a US citizen who is perpetrating open revolution against a duly elected government … TREASON .. and should be in prison by any definition or interpretation of the law!
The saddest part of all of this is that if these paid provocateurs and their liberal sheep do get their way … and violent revolution does spill out into the American streets …
There are an estimated over 300,000,000 guns in private hands in this country, and well over 90% of these weapons are concentrated in the hands of those who these very liberals and domestic terrorists are trying so hard to provoke, NOT in the hands of the gun hating liberals … It wont even be a contest …
My message to all my liberal friends is … Please wake up because you are a tool, you are being used to foment a revolution you have no chance of winning … You are mere cannon fodder for an elitist caste with an agenda … The utter destruction of America! Is this what you truly seek?
All of our differences can be resolved in peaceful dialog where all of us can truly exercise our freedoms and rights. But to deny those who you disagree with their rights, as you exercise yours in a hyper inflated fashion, “IS” a direct path to said revolution … Something we do not ever wish to see … and truly believe that if you stop long enough to really think this trough … you do not wish for either!
